You supply construction paper, markers, glue or tape, and any crafty odds and ends you have on hand, such as stickers, glitter, googly eyes, whatever. Brenda Ferber will supply the story time as well as a peek into how real life + imagination = story. She'll read her picture book, The Yuckiest Stinkiest Best Valentine Ever, which The New York Times called a "boisterous, just sweet-enough comic caper," and she'll share the real life incident that inspired the story. Then she'll guide the kids as they create their own unique Valentine Men.
